Welcome to my page covering my dyslexia services; probably as you are aware there are very few avenues of help in Japan for learners with dyslexia or other learning difficulties. Unfortunately I am unable to teach in Japanese however I do tutor English speaking learners. The average age of my learners are eight to ten years old and have a reasonable grasp of spoken English, this is important since they need to understand my spoken instructions. I have been in Japan for ten years and teaching dyslexic learners since 2011. Please have a look around the website to see the services that I offer and if your child might benefit from my help.
Please note that I am a dyslexic tutor, this means that I am qualified to teach students with dyslexia and find out where their problem areas are in regards to writing, reading and phonological problems, if you child has not been tested yet and you suspect they have dyslexia the test that I administer is not enough. This will need to be done by a clinical psychologist who will do a number of tests to find out if they have dyslexia, learning disability/difficulty, ADHD or other co-occurring symptoms. Once they have been properly tested and have been found to have dyslexia then I take over by doing a placement test to find out which areas of writing, reading, phonics and memory problems they have.
If you suspect your child might have a learning difficulty please contact one of these psychologists to arrange a session to find out more. Marielle Gorissen and Dr. Ron Shumsky their links can be found at the bottom.
